My husband and I did La Verkin and Kolob Arch in a day. The mileage we recorded didn't match what's posted on the way in (I think the sign said 6 miles to the Kolob Arch trail, but it was more like 7+). We did 16 miles total in slightly less than 9 hours, which was maybe a bit ambitious... More

Well marked, steep descent to valley, nice primitive camping spots, permit required. Best in late spring and fall, sandy trail. Kolob arch trail difficult, however 2 hikers with water shoes just walked up the stream to the arch and said easier route, we had taken the trail Be aware of weather we could see the effects of recent flash flooding

This hike down the laverkin creek trail from Lee's pass was studied for months, even many you tube videos were watched yet nothing prepared us for this hike down to campsite 4. The hike was 11 miles down to campsite 4 over some of the most difficult terrain. It was a rock strewn path that descended about 750 feet over... More

I backpacked the La Verkin Creek Trail and camped overnight in Campsite #7, which is designated for two people. My backpack weighed 42 lbs., including three liters of water. I was a solo hiker so I had to carry all of the gear I would need to camp overnight. Campsite #7 is next to a creek, which makes it convenient... More

We took these trails the day after a storm. Small parts of the trail had washed away and other parts had been inundate by run off sand and dead foliage. Despite this we were able to follow the trail pretty well and it was a fabulous trail. The woods were fascinating to me being a mixture of red desert sand,... More

This trail starts at the Lee Pass Trailhead in the Kolob Canyons section of Zion. It's a steady downhill through beautiful scenery from the pass as you make your way south. Since I was trekking across the park, it was relatively easy, but I imagine the climb out during and out and back trip would be rather strenuous. You eventually... More

If you are planning an over nite try to get campsite #6. It is beautiful. Site is flat and sandy which is nice to sleep on. It overlooks the creek and has a swimming hole that looks like an oasis. You will love it

I have wanted to hike to Kolob Arch for so long it was rather surreal to stand on the cliff and look across to see it with my own eyes. It was huge! Bigger than I expected as I have read others who said it looked small since it was far away. But it was sturdy and massive and wide... More

The Kolob Arch Trail runs along La Verkin Creek so it is often referred to as the La Verkin Creek Trail. It leads hikers to the worlds 2nd longest arch located in Zion National Park.
